A very nice place with good view of Tbilisi city. A Historical place. An old church is also there. This spot provide great views for taking pics. Only problem is with beggers prevalent in that area.

I have been before, last time in winter. It's a fair walk uphill but worth the view. You also get to go inside the church, all free of charge, the church is fairly small so difficult to enjoy in high season. The garden at the back has a lot of benches and two water fountains to drink from. Amazingly cold... More

King Vakhtang on horseback over looks the city in Tbilisi. It is adjacent to the Mehtki Church. Not to visit by itself, but while visiting church.

This review is quite late. The Monument of Georgian King Vakhtang Gorgasali is strategically located on top of the hill which overlooks the city of Tbilisi. It is an attraction any visitor will not miss when touring around the Old City.
